A rather prominent pal who usually goes to Davos [The World Economic Forum] didn't this year, but he's pretty closely following the proceedings by WEB TV. When I caught him he was watching a panel with "Chambers [Cisco], Gates, and a Google guy," as he described it. His take: "The Google guy is great; the other two are like old industrialists." He said that he'd just gotten off the phone with another hot shot, who is in attendance, and had labeled the attendees in general "globalization's dinosaurs."
Who knows ... but an interesting commentary.
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
